anyone give me a run down on these?
kinda heavy-3400lbs i think
gas mileage is about 18-20 street i believe...
are you looking something for something with better gas mileage? there's a lot more out there...
what year? fairly decent car, underpowered for their size.
I agree. Unless you have some good deal someone is willing to give you, you could get a better car for gas milage.
Motor swap. Similar to the JDM Toyota Mark II. There is a lot on Japan for VIP and drifting this car so if you seach, you can find a lot of goodies. There should also be Cressida related forums too.
Im thinking a 2jz swap...the TT would kick ass...and then why not a getrag 6 speed manual tranny swap also
89-91 Cressida's have the non turbo 3rd gen supra motor, plus theyre actually lighter than the Supra. save a couple hundred bucks and turbo the 7MGE, youve got a hell of a sleeper...
i have way too much involved in my Supras right now, otherwise id have one for a daily myself.
Cressidas own you!
they sip gas like a mofo
I get 29 MPG on highway with mine. Then again I did get headers, intake full exhaust, no cat, so the car breathes much easier.
had one, had tranny issues. key word-had
7mgte would be easier and make a hell of a sleeper
cheaper than a 2j, change headgasket, minor supporting mods, boltons and put down 400-450RWHP.
Sedans were available stateside with a manual, but they are rare. Wagons were auto only, but Supra trannies are plentiful to do a swap. 7M-GTE is a possible swap, and probably the easiest, but it is far from easy due to wiring differences between the turbo and non-turbo (7M-GE)
The MX71/MX72 ('82-'88?) came with the 2.8-liter 5M-GE, and the later MX81 came with the 3.0 7M-GE
I am seriously considering a Cressida wagon with manual swap as my next car.
sure why not
